In paintings of the exhibition “Back to the Homeland” artistic expression is sought through materiality and clarity of form. The artist interacts with the object using real and abstract means of expression.
"Careful work on the easel gave birth to the "credo "of my painting - to move from an abstract image or feeling to a real, material, surreal or even hypersiurreal mood ...", says the author of the exhibition.
